Working With A Commercial Locksmith To Secure Your Commercial Building


Commercial properties often use doors and locks that are heavy-duty and more durable than standard locksets. The locks on these doors can be rekeyed in many cases and even taken apart for repairs by a qualified commercial locksmith if they are not working correctly. 

Replacing Locksets

Replacing the lockset in a commercial door is not that much harder to do than replacing one in the standard door, but the commercial locks often have specific retaining methods that require you to have the right tools to do the work. A commercial locksmith can replace the lock extremely quickly in most situations and have the tools and equipment to do the job without damage to the door or the lock.

If you need to replace a commercial lockset, it is best to get the commercial locksmith hardware so that you know you are getting the best quality locks for your business. The locksmith may have several quality ranges, so be sure that you ask about the locks before choosing the one for your doors. 

Rekeying Your Business

A lost key can be a pretty good reason to rekey your business locks, and a commercial locksmith can help you. If you have employees with keys to your commercial building, it is critical that they control where those keys are. One lost key could allow a random person with the key to enter the property without you knowing they are there. For retail businesses, this can be a significant issue because the intruder could be there to steal from the business.

The cost of replacing all the locks would be extremely high, but if you have high-quality commercial locks, a commercial locksmith can come and change the tumblers and pins inside the lock then make new keys for you to fit the doors. The core of the lock needs to be extracted from the cylinder to rekey it, but the locksmith will have a key that allows them to pull the core quickly and easily.

Replacing Your Doors

If you are replacing the doors on the building but want to keep the locks that you are currently using, it is possible to have a commercial locksmith come and take the locks out of the old doors and install them in the new ones for you. As long as the door and lock are not damaged, the commercial lockset should fit the new door without any issue, but the locksmith can verify it. 

If you have further questions, reach out to a local commercial locksmith.

My Garage Sale Safe

I have always been a big fan of garage sales. There is just something about the ability to stop and pick up hidden treasures for an incredibly low price that always gets my blood flowing. So when I spotted a top of the line safe at a local sale for an amazingly low price, I simply could not help myself. After years of sitting in my garage unused, I decided to finally move my safe into the house. The problem was, I had forgotten the combination. Thankfully, a local locksmith was able to help me gain access to the safe. While watching the locksmith work, I was fascinated by the way he bypassed the safe's lock. Suddenly I found myself wanting to learn this skill. Throughout the course of research, I learned a lot about the profession of locksmiths. Today, I would like to share that knowledge with you.
